Premier League Head-to-Head Stats (20th-22nd Jan 2018)

We head into week 24 in the Premier League and we’ve another full set of fixtures that spread over Saturday, Sunday and Monday to take in.

We get started on Saturday lunchtime with Chelsea, who are not scoring many goals at the moment, going for a day at the seaside as they take on Brighton.

Your normal selection of 3pm Saturday games to enjoy (6) with Arsenal vs Crystal Palace and Burnley vs Man Utd two of the stand out games.

We conclude the Saturday action with league leaders, Man City, entertaining Newcastle and with Sergio Aguero scoring 8 goals in his last 5 games vs the Magpies then the visitors will be hoping that run of form doesn’t continue.

Onto Sunday and we’ve just the one match as Southampton entertain Spurs at St Mary’s in a clash that generally produces goals. The pair met at Wembley earlier this season with Spurs winning that one 5-2, while last season’s repeat of this fixture ended 1-4 to the Londoners.

We end week 24 on Monday night with Swansea hosting Liverpool at the Liberty Stadium – Liverpool’s Firmino has scored 5 goals in the last 3 head-to-heads so he’s certainly a man to have on your radar.

We’ve got all the games covered from a head-to-head angle, plus our best betting option on each match based on the stats
